Met with amazing Aussie entrepreneurial women in Sydney. Karen Platt from One P Design, a fashion line dedicated to both style and sustainability. Made me smile when we met at Kirribilli market and later had the opportunity to view their collection in person at their facility in Neutral Bay.

Earlier that day I had met with Balmoral‘s talented designer who had made amazing handbags from recycled bottles.

In the Rocks, I met Joanne Pagano, owner and designer at Made to Wear. She was cutting her own patterns and sewing her garments in front of her store when I stepped in. I was so happy to see her actually creating a garment in real time.

Loved meeting local designers that are making a mark with their brands and owning it!
